TEDTEA History

When looking through some paperwork, we came across this photo of Oliver A. Howland standing in front of his steam engine that was eventually donated to the Texas Early Day Tractor & Engine Association. Included with the pictures was a hand written note-

“The Steam Engine was bought by Will Pagett of the Prairie Lee Community in about 1889. It was shipped by Katy Railroad from Pittsburg, Pa. It was then moved by wagon about 6 miles to Prairie Lee. I’m not quite sure just when it was moved to Andice, Texas.

William Davidson built a gin in 1921 in Andice. Does not know when he sold to Carl Doering and Bill McCann. Oliver A. Howland built a cedar mill in Jolleyville, Tx in 1940. He had it in operation several years. He dismantled it all about 1980.”

March “1st Saturday” Workday

March 2nd will be a workday. We will begin about 8:00-8:30 a.m. We are looking for some trees to plant to replace the few that didn’t make it. There will also be plenty of spring cleanup to do. Come out for the day, come out for an hour or two, or just come by to say Hello!

Saturday January 5th Workday!

Workday on Saturday! Planning on working in the pavilion re-arranging some things. Bring work gloves! If things dry out enough we will work on the sheet metal on the old barn on the new property. There are a couple things that still need to be finished.

Thanks for a amazing show!

A huge thank you to everyone who came out and made the 47th Annual State Show a huge success!  Even with the rain we had impressive numbers of visitors and exhibitors.  Excuse us while we take a break for a few weeks to unwind and spend some time with friends and family.  We are already making plans for the coming year so keep a eye on the webpage and facebook for updates in the coming weeks!

 

Thanks again,
